Canadian Hotels Worthy of a Duke and Duchess

As newlywed royals Will and Kate prepare for their tour, BRIDES scoped out five couples-friendly hotels where we think they should crash:

1) Montebello, Québec, June 30-July 2

Will and Kate kick things off with a three-day trip through the Northern Capital region, hitting up Ottawa, Ontario, and Gatineau, Québec. We're sure they'll bunk up close to both cities at the Fairmont Château Montebello, a log-cabin retreat (the world's biggest!) with all the creature comforts. (Jacuzzi by the bed, anyone?) Doubles from $265 (low season) and $295 (high season);

2) Montréal, July 2

This royal pair loves to party—no wonder they're swinging by Montréal, a city famous for its fab nightlife and live music scene. They'll find boldface company at the posh Hôtel Le St. James, where everyone from Mick Jagger to Madonna beds down. Doubles from $395 (year-round);

3) Québec City, July 3

Will and Kate can practice français in très cool Québec. After strolling cobblestone streets and sampling poutine—a must-not-miss French-Canadian concoction of fries, gravy, and cheese curds—they can unwind in a sleek and chic suite at the Hôtel Pur. Doubles from $139 (low season) and $169 (high season);

4) Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, July 3-4

The duchess will swoon over the storybook fields and rugged coastline of rural Prince Edward Island, where Anne of Green Gables is set. The twosome could rent a cute cottage for primo privacy, or they could cozy up at the Great George, a historic inn steps from the waterfront. Doubles from $199 (low season) and $244 (high season), with breakfast;

5) Lake Louise, Alberta, July 6-8

The newlyweds are set to rock out at the Stampede, a rodeo extravaganza held every summer in Calgary, but we suggest that they also venture over to nearby Lake Louise. Will can canoe, Kate can hike, and they can both bliss out at the Fairmont hotel's superb Spa. Doubles from $275 (low season) and $393 (high season);
